oh so you are alive

It's true, I am still amongst the living. I know you all were so very worried about me :0)
What have I been doing you ask?
Well now, lets see...

The Olympics have been on and I do love me some Olympics.
It pretty much rules my life and everyone around me simply because no one has access to the TV at night.
Needless to say my mom was very happy when they ended.
I however was not :0(

My love is speedskating and short track though I have become quite a fan of snowboarding after Shawn White's truly amazing run!

I bought a new phone.
It's a blackberry.
Not too sure if I like it yet.
I miss my google phone even though it was craptastic.


I saw my niece perform in her school play twice. They did scenes from several of Shakespeare's plays and sonnets.

Gabby has some serious talent!! Man I love that girl!
*I apologize for the crappy camera work*

She's not in this one but I love it anyway!

I went on my first date in like a bagillion years.
It was good.
I had fun but I felt super awkward.
I usually feel super awkward around people though so it shouldn't have been a big deal.
but it was.
I liked him.
A lot more than I wanted to.
Not that he's a bad guy, cuz he's not. not even close.
But just cuz it's my first time back in the swing of things after a ridiculously long hiatus.
But yeah. I liked him.
Don't know if he liked me though.


Oh the winner of the giveaway was Ellen who just happened to set me up with my date.
I believe she and her hubby enjoyed the cookies immensely.
Hey Ellen?
You're welcome :0)


I splurged and bought these. I love them so much it's not even funny.


I found my dream wedding dress.
Why was I looking at wedding dresses?
Because that's what I do when I get bored.
I plan my dream wedding.
And no that is not weird.
Or crazy.

Isn't it gorgeous?
I swoon every time I see it.

I wanted to murder an employee who fell asleep during training. Twice.
And then blame it on me when I confronted her about it.
I didn't though.
I let her go instead.


I volunteered at the homeless shelter for the first time on Friday.
It was a lot of fun actually.
Very humbling and moving experience.
I loved it!
Except when that guy came up to me and smelled me. Not once, but twice.


The bane of my existence this past week has been this:

Its a baby blanket I've been working on for my friend Susie whose having a baby.
I know it's not the best blanket ever made.
Mainly because I only know two crochet stitches.
And I haven't crocheted a single thing for the past year.
And it's only the second blanket I've ever made. But it's the thought that counts right?
So yeah.
I'm never going to make a blanket again.
Until I do.




i love that dress!! its so amazingly awesome and cute and all that!! its quite exquisite! great taste you have!! just wanted to let you know!
